So sorry for the loss of your beloved Jim. Praying that God will give you peace in your quiet moments and comfort to replace your grief. Please remember, not that Jim has died, but that he lived and his life has given you memories too precious to forget. I know your hearts are aching and your grief over Jim's passing is great - however, Joy of welcoming him back in the Resurrection will be even greater. For God has promised, "Your Dead Will Live. Awake and shout joyfully, You Residents In The Dust!.." (Isaiah 26:19) With deepest sympathy.
